Beginner needs help

advice
#1

Hello all.
I am not terribly computer savvy, and certainly a rank beginner with Sketchup.
I’m trying to discover whether I can actually achieve anything with this program, to determine whether to buy it.
I need to discover how to draw walls of 11-1/4" thickness, 3-1/2" and 5-1/2" thickness.
Of course many many other things as I move along, but to date (one day’s searching) nowhere do I find an answer to this need.
I’m happy for direct email since I don’t know how to get this forum to alert me to a response: fmarti@ridgwayco.net.
Many thanks,
Felix

Hi Felix,

Yes, SketchUp can model to this level of precision pretty easily. Take a look at this video on drawing accurately in SketchUp.

Good luck!
